3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured a dark rich brown in color with a small bit of head that fell right off. Aroma has dark fruit, sweet boozy rum, dark sugars, vanilla, and dried pit fruit. Mouth feel coats with sugars and the carbonation is on the lower side. Flavor is quite the bruiser, heavy dark sugars, molasses, raisins, rum barrels, and plenty of heat.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2014 Bottle courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours deep reddish brown with a small beige head that quickly dissipates leaving a small trace and some nice looking legs on the glass. Smell is sweet and boozy with sweet dark bread, raisins in rum, cereal, baked pears, alcohol, run & coke, christmas fruitcake and toffee. Taste is heavy sweet, malty and boozy with sweet dark bread, caramel, toffee, raisins in rum, hay and pears. Mouthfeel is sticky sweet, boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and boozy with sweet bread, figs, raisins in rum, cereal, toffee and rum & coke. Extremely hot! Drinks like a strong rum & coke which I guess works.
